anise extract ( i use tablespoon)
sesame seeds (to sprinkle on top of cake, add as much or as little as you like)
Preheat oven to 350. Bakes for 45 min to 1 hour.
Cream soft butter, sugar and egg yokes.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda alternating with orange juice. Add anise.
Beat egg white and fold into batter.
Transfer to a greased pan (I use a 10 inch cheesecake spring pan), place a dime wrapped in tin foil into the batter and place in oven.
When cake raises a little brush with egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top, continue to bake.
